Tuesday, March 13, 2012 – Conservation authorities want to remind residents of dangers that exist near streams, rivers, ponds and lakes around this time of year.

Spring is quickly approaching and with warmer temperatures, people look forward to getting outdoors. However, warmer temperatures also bring: rain, melting snow and ice, which can contribute to higher, faster flowing water in our watercourses. In addition, slippery and unstable stream banks and extremely cold water temperatures can lead to very hazardous conditions close to any water body.

Please keep your family and pets away from any water’s edge and help make this a safe and enjoyable spring. For more information, call your local conservation authority
